GO CUPID! BE GONE!



Cupid don’t be stupid
Fly elsewhere
You don’t belong here
I have no time to play games
Don’t even bother calling my name
Oh, please!
Flee!
Go away with your bow and arrow
Leave those that mourn to be in sorrow
Fly away!
Go away!
You are not needed here
Fly elsewhere
And look for someone else to bother
Look around for lovers
They are everywhere
See them here and there
Inflict your wounds of love elsewhere
I repeat, “You don’t belong here!”
“Shoo!”
Be gone!

ROOTS




Everyone saw the tree
It was huge
Dry and ugly
It blocked the beautiful view ahead
Right there in the middle of the other beautiful trees
It kept growing bigger and bigger
Time passed by
The other trees got smaller
But the dry tree grew bigger
It was killing everything around it
It looked so dead
Yet it grew so big
No one knew why
But the evil glared in their faces
No one saw its roots
Buried deep within the soil
Large roots that sucked up life
Evil roots spreading underneath the soil
Poisoning everything around it
Everyone saw the tree
But no one saw its roots
No one saw the roots of bitterness

CAPTURED





You lied!
You are a liar!
How quickly I fell
How high the fall
How dare you lie so beautifully?
A cunning thief you are
Disguised in pretty clothes
And a sweet accent
Oh, I fell!
For your lies
I fell!
You lured me into your web
You spoke about greener pastures
Painted pictures so enchanting
I was deceived
By your promises and tales
I put my needs ahead of logic
I let my desire for a false freedom
Lead me into captivity
What a fool I was!
Captured I was not
But captured I am now
I’ve been chained
Chained in a land I know not
Chained to a bed I know not
Sold to give pleasure to men I know not
The days pass by
 I treasure them not
My choices, I despise
My life, I hate
My captor, I detest
Freedom!!!
Where art thou?!
Bring me back those days
Those days I had it all
But wanted more
Send a note to my mama and papa
Tell them I love them
Tell them I was scammed
Tell them I miss them
Tell them I’ll be back home soon
Soon?
If wishes were coins
I would have bought my freedom
But here I am
Enslaved by the devilish schemes of my captor
My master
He holds a whip!
Pray for me!
Pray for me!
He is coming soon…no…
He is right at my door!
Please, pray for me!
My captor is the devil!

TELL ME WHY





Tell me why
Why you sit in the shadows
When the light is right in front of you

Why you choose to fade away
When you can shine
Brighter than the stars in the sky

Why you wither away
When you can bloom
And stay beautiful like the rose flower in my garden

Tell me why
Why you choose to hide your true self
Just to fit into the ideology of another

Tell me why
Why you hunger for toxic pills
Pills that steal your youth and innocence

Tell me why
Why you choose to be lost
When you can be found and safe

Tell me why
Im trying not to cry
Cos I see waste
A pretty flower
Hidden behind dark curtains
A pretty flower in torment
A beautiful flower you are
Yet you choose not to bloom
Please, tell me why!

NO!




A thousand petals
Wine and chocolates
Perfect!
Always perfect!
Perfect to me
Never perfect to you
A hundred proposals
And a hundred no’s
A thousand nights of tears
Heartbreaks and regrets
Tormented thoughts from all your no’s
Why “no”?
What’s wrong with me?
And once again
I try again
The perfect scene
A diamond ring
My charming smile
My special tux
And still you say no!
No?!
Give me a “yes”!
A “yes”…or something close to it
I crawl back into my hole
And swim in an abyss of tears
Anger
Rage
Hurt
Bitterness
The shackles that bind me
 This has now become my mission
I no longer love you
I’m just…
I just…
And then it dawns on me
“I’m addicted!”
Addicted to your indifference
Addicted to your rejection
Addicted to your “no’s”
I’m an addict!
Lost in a cocoon of misery
A star-eyed lunatic
In search of a “yes”
From the lips of my tormentor
I no longer love you
What I feel is…
I…
Come on!
I need a “yes”!
Free me from this misery!
Just give me a “yes”!
Say yes!
Please say yes!

STRANGERS




When?
When did we throw caution to the wind?
Living life with no care
Unconcerned about the distance between us
The silence
Those conversations that should have happened
When?
When did we become strangers?

  
This was never the plan
It all started out so well
Now, its slowly becoming a distant memory
You seem to have moved on
Have you?
I cant tell
Cos you are now a stranger
Please, when did we become strangers?!!!
  

I still remember how hard I fell for you
How silly I acted around you
I would walk all night just to see you at dawn
So far away I lived from you
Yet, the distance didn’t really matter
The distance made me fight harder
So tell me
When did we become strangers?


 We both did wrong
We let the fire burn out
We got so comfortable
We no longer threw in the logs
We watched the fire die
Tolerating our flaws
But not really caring for each other anymore
Oh lordthats how we became strangers!

  
Here I am reminiscing
Waiting for you to come back to me
And there you are
Holding on to the ring of another
What can I do to win your heart again?
Tell me, Mi Amour
I can’t bear the “what ifs”
I can’t be a stranger anymore

Your Love



Take me to your secret place
Let me abide under your shadow
As I drink in your beauty
Shaken by your glory
I worship!
Intoxicated by this love
Sweet and filling
True and untainted
YOU!
You are love!
You are Lord!
I ponder on this love story
All I see is the cross
The nails
The pain
And then the glory
Oh, my best love story!
It might mean so little to some
But to me it means everything
You mean everything to me
Your love is unquestionable
Your love…like a soft blanket around me
Protecting me
Molding me
Keeping me warm
I yield to you
Freeing myself to be filled
To drown in this beautiful pool of perfection
Perfect love
I yield to you
Perfect you are
Perfect your love is
Your love
My perfect blanket
